  • Jim Beadle - drums
  • Nathan Reeve - bass

In 2008, the band signed a management deal with Jon Shellers Brilliant Management, and released the double A-side single featuring Judy Dyble, former Fairport Convention vocalist. (Who was also managed by Sheller). The single included a remake of Fairport Convention's song "One Sure Thing" and The Conspirators song "Take Me To Your Leader". It reached No.7 in the official uk indie singles chart, spending 3 weeks in the top 10.

The promotion for this single saw Dyble make a couple of very rare live appearances, at the Harrogate International Conference Centre, and at an in-store live gig at HMV's superstore in Leeds city centre on 3 March 2008.[1]
